November and December have been busy months for groups in Stockton LEP .
The Stockton Knit & Natter group started meeting on Monday afternoons at the beginning of the year. They meet in the church where they enjoy a cup of tea, learn new skills and find a safe space to share problems and talk about the Bible.
In November the group used the dozens of poppies they had knitted since the beginning of the year, to decorate the church for their Remembrance Service. Look at the result here
After Remembrance Sunday, they moved from knitting poppies to knitting nativity characters ready for the Christingle & Crib Services at Christmas.
At the beginning of November the congregation enjoyed a Harvest Supper prepared by the ladies of the church, which was followed by entertainment.
